Hi, first time posting. A complete beginner here
This is not KiCad specific. I am confused about creating a schematic symbol from this unencrypted LM317 library. It’s a PSpice .LIB file (thanks hermit)
My first confusion is that it contains many SUBCKT headers (do you call it headers?), unlike online tutorials. Which .SUBCKT should I choose ?
Secondly, this is a 3-pin voltage regulator, but the SOT-223 package here appears to have 4 pins, two of which are actually outputs!. What exactly should I do ? There is no .SUBCKT in the lib file with three pins.
For symbol creation, I open the .lib text file in LTSpice, highlight “LM317_TRANS”, right click and choose create symbol. It’s easy and creates a generic symbol (but 4 pins ?!!!)
Sorry if this is off-topic. Hope this doesn’t bother anyone.
